The test was shown to be sensitive, and specificity was demonstrated using DNA derived from a panel of Gram-negative pathogens, and there was no detectable difference between B. melitensis and B. abortus.
Effects of Burkholderia pseudomallei and other Burkholderia species on eukaryotic cells in tissue culture.
Uptake was followed by the intracellular multiplication of B. pseudomallei and the induction of cell fusion and multinucleate giant cell formation and this ability may be important in the pathogenesis of both acute and chronic infection.

Results provide the first evidence of a host protective mechanism against B. pseudomallei in Taylor Outbred mice, and the rapid production of IFN-γ within the first day of infection determines whether the infection proceeds to an acute lethal outcome or becomes chronic.
Intestinal bacteria and the hydrolysis of glycosidic bonds.
The results are discussed in terms of the toxicological and pharmacological effects of various ingested glycosides and of the enterohepatic circulation of compounds by four laboratory animal species commonly used in toxicological studies.
Response of toxigenic Vibrio cholerae 01 to physico-chemical stresses in aquatic environments
Results suggest that toxigenic V. cholerae 01 are able to survive for extended periods in warm water containing no nutrients but having a salinity of 0.25-3.0% and a pH of around 8.0, which is sufficient for rapid growth in the absence of nutrients and under the same conditions for enhanced growth in their presence.

Association of Vibrio cholerae with fresh water amoebae.
An investigation was undertaken to determine whether Acanthamoeba polyphaga SHI and Naegleria gruberi 1518/1e could affect the survival of various strains of Vibrio cholerae in laboratory microcosms.…
